Prediction forthe Weekend of November 18 - 19, 2017

Posted to the Web November 17, 2017, 5:54 PM EST.

Change in Futures (Avg.): +0.034

Change in 2nd-Lowest Retail (Avg.): -0.015

Pressure: (Avg.): +0.005

Trend for tomorrow: Steady

Trend for next 2-3 days: Up

Recommendation for tonight: Buy gas tonight.


  1. Average pressure is steady for tomorrow and very weakly upward for the next 2 to 3 days, and the local picture is similar in most U.S. cities that we monitor. A few places have simple upward pressure, especially where retail prices fell sharply in the past couple of days. Retail prices are more likely to go up than down over the weekend, but most places will see only small increases. Still, it's time to lock in this week's price cuts. Fill up tonight.
  2. When average pressure is steady for tomorrow and upward for the next 2 to 3 days, our algorithm predicts a range of prices for the next business day which includes both increasing and decreasing prices. It also makes the general recommendation to buy gas tonight. While the best possible outcome is that the recommendation to buy results in a net savings (or at least no loss), we will still claim a correct prediction even if gas prices decrease, as long as they are within the predicted range. Our prediction is just not as definite as it is in most circumstances. While we do not normally publish a predicted price range for the average price among our 12-city prediction model, we do publish it whenever average pressure is steady. The average of second-lowest gas prices among our 12 cities tonight is $2.543. Our predicted price range for the weekend is 2.531 - 2.549. We will call this a successful prediction if the average price moves upward over the weekend (regardless of how much), or if it moves down as far as $2.531.

Why bother? Gas prices are just going up and up, so what's the big deal about a prediction? Prices are simply going up and there's nothing you can do about it, right? Not really! Once in a while, prices halt in their upward trend, and even move downward. That is your opportunity to save money on gas. If you know when prices are going to fall, you can make sure you have room in your tank to take advantage of it. Or if you know prices are going up tomorrow, you can fill up before they rise. And that's what is all about!
